For me the most frustrating aspect of living in Albuquerque is the lack of fashion shopping choice. The one destination that does exist has major potential with stores like BCBG, Anthropologie and Ann Taylor in place yet even they seem to offer a lower level stock package compared to similar sized cities. So where does this leave the Albuquerque fashionista? Obviously escape excursions are necessary for those of us who like a variety of stores but the obvious source is online which can be the cause of yet further frustration!
While some fashion companies are still on a learning curve, as far as online shopping, the trend inspired Spanish company Mango offers a virtual stand-out for creative, consumer friendly navigation. Opening their flagship doors in Barcelona in 1984, Mango slowly expanded throughout Europe, Asia and more recently the USA, with many more outlets found at international airports. Recently Kate Moss fronted the Spring and Summer campaigns, another good indication that this company is one of the few success stories of the millennium! Check out a selection of great looks and useful basics below. I think you will agree, Mango have managed to take online fashion shopping to the next level!
